As we all know by now, Hair Füror is as frantic as a pack of beagles in a vacuum cleaner factory and is trying to overthrow the election. One of his last stands is probably Michigan, which will certify its election results today at 1PM their time.
Some other developments to consider
- A lawsuit brought by Lord Damp Nut’s 2020 Goat Rodeo campaign that tried to block the certification of Pennsylvania’s election results was savagely dismissed by a federal judge on Saturday evening.
- Meanwhile in Wisconsin, Attorney heading up Trump campaign’s Wisconsin recount effort is seeking to throw out his own vote:
The attorney leading President Donald Trump’s recount effort in Wisconsin voted illegally according to his own legal argument that in-person absentee ballots should be thrown out. So did his wife.
High dudgeon and low comedy.
So what’s up? Why are people freaking out about Michigan?
“For what is believed would be the first time in history, Michigan’s elections board could deadlock Monday on certifying the state’s presidential election results.
“By law and by practice, certification by the Board of State Canvassers — comprised of two Democratic appointees and two Republican ones — is supposed to be a routine sign-off. Certification acknowledges that Michigan’s unofficial results match the tabulated vote counts. It follows a two-week period of double-checking in Michigan’s 83 counties, where some inaccuracies in the unofficial numbers, as is normal, were found and corrected.
“But these are not normal times. The climate is hyper-partisan, disinformation is rampant, and Republican President Donald Trump and his team of lawyers are spreading false claims, working to somehow overturn election results in Michigan and other key states, and upend President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the Electoral College, where Biden rung up 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232.”
Now, as we mentioned before, Michigan is not a trifecta state, and it does have a Democratic triplex (Governor, Secretary of State, and Attorney General are all Democrats). If one of the Republicans on the board refuses to certify, Gov. Whitmer has the power to replace that person.
I think we got this.
